Video Transcription

All the information that we get from our clients is highly confidential. We all have to abide by a code of ethics of our professional body, which means that all the information that clients disclose to us is confidential to us. We have a conversation with clients about whether they’re happy with us, contacting their GP, and this is something that we would do as a matter of routine, just to let their GP know that they’re seeing somebody for psychological therapy. But if they have any concerns about that, then this is something that they don’t have to agree to do. It’s very much up to the client to decide if there’s anybody at all in terms of a professional that we share any information with. In terms of anybody in the actual client’s life or work environment, we never share any information without the client’s consent. There are times when a client might request us to write a report on their behalf or ask for something that they want that is supportive to them, which we’re always very happy to do. But as a matter of professional code of ethics, every bit of information that we receive from clients is highly confidential to the therapeutic relationship and the sessions.
